Useful pollinator research and resources
Want some easy to read scientific research about insect pollinators to download for future reference? I have selected the research areas solely relating to insect pollinators and given links to downloadable PDF’s, with a line brief one line description for each PDF. Enjoy!
Wild and managed pollinating bees are susceptible to a range of diseases that are being shared between species
How can farmers and growers achieve effective crop protection while limiting pesticide risk to pollinators and the essential ecosystem services they provide?
As town and cities continue to grow how can land managers help insect pollinators in urban areas?
A diverse and abundant pollinator community is needed to maintain stable and high quality crop yields, as well as maintaining healthy and diverse wild ecosystems.
As demands on food production increase how can land managers, growers and policy makers help to conserve and manage insect pollinators?
Some groups of pollinating insects, such as bees, have declined and research has revealed a range of different factors that appear to be involved.
